We know as much as you do
At 24:30 (about 9:35, I guess) the NBC correspondent starts talking about other possible hijackings. The terrorism expert suggests that certain parts of US airspace could be closed off and protected by the military. As this conversation was happening, the Secret Service was getting conflicting reports about Flight 77, which hit the Pentagon just minutes later. But the Secret Service did not have the ability to scramble jets in order to protect any airspace. That ability lay with NORAD, which was totally unprepared for this incident and only got the authorization to shoot down planes 10 minutes after they had all been downed — incidentally, a full 15 minutes after the passengers on Flight 93 decided for themselves to take their own plane down.
A very composed report by Jim Miklaszewski at the 26 minute mark. He is inside the Pentagon.

Great job with coverage on NBC throughout this segment.
While I can't be certain, I'm somewhat confident that the wife of the Chairman of the Federal Reserve was not part of some grand conspiracy on 9/11. The number of people these conspiracy theorists have looped into the events of that day is overwhelming.
The vast majority of Americans are unaware of how Washington works. The truth is that very few secrets are kept as secrets in Washington once more than a handful of individuals are brought into the loop.
The fact is that America was aware for several years during the Clinton administration that Bin Laden was a critical threat to the United States yet no concerted effort was taken. I like Bill Clinton - I believe the man was a good President. The fact is that someone should have taken aggressive measures to take Bin Laden out before Bush 43 ever became President.
I wish these conspiracy theorists would find something else to hang their hats on - developing these theories on the hinges of such a tragic event is in the worst of tastes.

Andrea Mitchell Greenspan First Names bin Laden
Of the people on NBC, it was Andrea Mitchell, the wife of Alan Greenspan, who first names Usama bin Laden as a possible suspect in the attacks.
00:10:25 David Gregory who was with the President said Bush was made aware on route to the event at the school.
00:19:10 Andrea Mitchell provides far more detail than anybody previously had regarding what has happened. She cites an unnamed "top US official",etc.
00:20:20 While Ms. Greenspan seeds the myth that UBL did it, we see a bright flash of light in the center, near the top of the hole in the North Tower.
